So if you drag a daughter or your wife who doesn't care about hockey to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, it is still a very interesting place to visit. I recommend staying in downtown Toronto vice where I stayed in North Toronto. Difficult to get into the city. There are several interactive exhibits where everyone in the family can play goalie, or, shoot the puck on a video/virtual goalie. You can act as a game announcer calling a score or a big goalie stop in a special audio/visual part of the hall of fame. The trophy room will be lost on non-fans but seeing the Calder Cup, Norris Trophy and the old bands of the original Stanley Cup in the "Vault Room," was really cool from a historic standpoint. There is also a hockey memoribilia/pop culture exhibit portion with all sorts of nicknacks that the whole family might enjoy. Figure on 1.5 - 2 hours for your visit.

This was our second visit to the HHOF in the last five years. Not something you would do if you didn't like hockey because, while the presentation is done well, it would be quite boring. But for anyone who enjoys hockey, whether new to the sport or not, it is the mecca. The place is divided into sections with different purposes/themes, so it is easy to stop and go get some lunch, and come back without feeling lost. Takes a good 2-3 hours minimum - we were there longer, but we have four kids ages 9-14 so we spent a lot of time in the interactive area as well. Fun - we all took turns shooting pucks, being goalie, etc., and that part is all included. Most places these days would charge extra for that interactive experience so I'm thankful these guys don't. We enjoyed the Stanley Cup film feature they were showing as well. Loved the trophy room, and you can get your picture taken with the Cup. Again, they had a photographer there to take photos that you could buy, but he also steps aside and lets you just take your own photos as well, which is much appreciated. Very thorough gift shop, which includes hard-to-find hockey items; lots of books, souvenirs - some team specific and some just HHOF.
We used a buy one, get one free admission coupon from the Entertainment Book to get in, which was nice as well, because it is a bit pricey.
There wasn't a cafe to eat in, but the entrance is right inside a mall area, which offers a huge food court so no issues there.

At least I can say I went... atleast... Hockey lovers, well they loved it! Really there's not much to it than that, "stats" old sticks and pucks... statues and that kind of thing. I wouldn't go back... that kind of "history" is wasted on me, but tons of very happy people! It's like what a wine tasting is for sommeliers...
